Tumor-associated systemic inflammatory response has been correlated with prognosis. Our aim was to analyze the utility of inflammation-based prognostic scores for prognostication and patient selection for cytoreduction and perioperative intraperitoneal chemotherapy (POIC) in patients diagnosed with peritoneal metastasis of colonic origin. A retrospective… CONTINUE READING
